  • Letter: Hoffer is the source for high school sports

    As the parent of a high school athlete, I always look forward to Michael Hoffer's wonderful coverage of games. His detailed observation of the contest is always put into the context of the teams' histories and futures. His enthusiasm for high school sports infuses everything he writes, and he alw...

  • Intentionally Unreasonable: It's Stevoe versus the status quo

    Let me begin this new column with a proper introduction; my name is Stevoe and I’m an unreasonable man through and through. This self-designation is borrowed from George Bernard Shaw and his maxim, “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists i...

    In a recent survey regarding the Falmouth library we learned that the town of Falmouth has grown 30 percent while the number of people using the library has increased 112 percent.

  • Letter: Nothing to fear but fear

    After reading Mr. Marstaller's letter in your Aug. 2 edition, I was struck by something. Why are so many "conservatives" afraid of things? It seems that everywhere I look I hear or read of "conservatives" telling people they need to fear this or that or telling us how much they fear something. Wh...

  • Letter: Support the Falmouth Flyer

    As a member of the OceanView community, I hope more of you will support the Falmouth Flyer METRO bus service, which means so much to our daily lives. It is a great benefit to me and others. We appreciate the regular service with competent drivers who are very friendly, too.

  • Letter: Beem should expand his viewing habits

    Edgar Allen Beem needs to be better informed. He should do as I do. I watch CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. I also tune into Rachel Maddow, "Democracy Now!," Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly. That is how you really hear all sides. Regarding the New Black Panthers, Samir Shabazz, who was allegedly...

  • The Universal Notebook: 'Fair-skinned and Unbalanced'

    Big Mike and I were leisurely bobbing about neck-deep in the lake to stay cool when all of a sudden things started to heat up. Mike, a retired state trooper, is my neighbor at the lake. A nice guy, hale fellow well met and all that. He calls me his “favorite liberal,” but until... 17

  • Short Relief: Dechaine's defense still fails to convince

    Ever since I moved to Maine more than 10 years ago, I have been perplexed by the attention that has been given to Dennis Dechaine, and frustrated not to have a fuller picture of the story. With the attention paid to Dechaine lately by Portland's daily newspaper, I decided to go back and read the ... 4

  • Letter: Falmouth’s plan for 2 schools would raise taxes

    I would like to endorse Council Chairman Tony Payne’s words of caution: Falmouth and the voters should go through a comprehensive evaluation of the disposition of Plummer-Motz and Lunt schools before concluding on their eventual utilization. The committee led by Councilor Cathy Breen...

  • Letter: Where do candidates stand on new park?

    The late lamented primary elections featured 11 candidates for governor of Maine singing pretty much in unison. They promised to keep the economy and jobs, jobs, jobs front and center if elected. They managed to do this without once mentioning the state's top job engine, the $10 billion...
